World's smallest cancer detection device

whether the tumor cells have the potential to metastasize.

The Einstein and Albany researchers will use nanotechnology, which involves studying and working with material on the molecular level, to design a "microchip" version of the artificial blood vessel that Dr. Condeelis has used successfully in animals. The microchip will be assembled from nanoscale components so that several different functions can be carried out within a very small package. The goal: to implant these tiny microchips ?just two to three cells in diameter and a tenth of a millimeter in length ?in human tumors, where they would remain for days or weeks. The chips would report remotely to scanners that would "read" them on the nature of the cells that infiltrate them--in particular, on whether metastatic cells are present that would call for more aggressive cancer therapy.

In 2005, Einstein formed an alliance with UAlbany's CNSE to advance education and research in the rapidly growing fields of nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine. "This NCI grant marks a true milestone for this partnership, which combines the unique expertise and resources of both institutions to apply nanoscale principles to detect diseases and develop treatments for them," says Ira M. Millstein, chairman of the Einstein Board of Overseers. "We are committed to ensuring that the Einstein-Albany alliance will lead the nation in efforts to use nanotechnology to improve peoples' lives."
